Defiant Merry Christmas wish


Today I received an email with the defiant message that said it battles “political correctness” and wishes everybody a Merry Christmas as the sender is celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ and wants that known, in spite of the suppression of that fact nowadays.

Well, my own response was to state that the term was used by people of a certain sector, right wing fundamentalists in an attempt to muzzle those who may want to express criticism on their position and dogmas; to call others political correct in defiance of that presents their own position as embattled, and as if they are in a minority and have to defend their views. In reality, they are presenting the position of the overwhelming majority in this society.
That is just a distorted view Of the situation where I live in the Okanagan: Christian, Caucasian middle class.
